Runners: Please help my friend!

I have a friend who is training for a marathon and has recently noticed that she can't fully flex her right hamstring and it is painful when she stretches that leg as well. The pain is most acute right behind her knee. Does anyone know what might be causing this? I am thinking it's just plainly an overuse injury...probably a little tendon or muscle strain, and the only thing that is going to help is....rest! But, her marathon is 3 weeks away.... Advice anyone?
